Bulldogs Coaching Staff Keeps Getting Stronger!

The Chicago Bulldogs announce Sam Fields as Head Coach for their 2005 Bantam Major CSDHL team. Moving to the Bulldogs from the '06 Assistant Coach position at CYA last season and Team Illinois '07 team the season prior, the Bulldogs are proud to add Coach Fields to the 2019-20 coaching lineup!

Sam played over 200 career professional games in the minor pros after playing high level hockey even as a youth with the Chicago Young Americans, participating in the prestigious Quebec Peewee Tournament and playing junior hockey. His pro career, however, was dramatically cut short as Sam confronted and won a serious battle with cancer.

Sam now looks forward to giving back to youth hockey by coaching with the Bulldogs and working with Delaney hockey.
